Objects Of Design #147: Motion Carafe

It will waver but it won’t fall

We’ve all seen the rocking brandy glasses that rock gently backwards and forwards and now Ole Jenson has gone one step further with the Motion Carafe for the same design house Normann Copenhagen. It’s always tilted but is quite secure and you can put it in the dishwasher too. If the idea of filling it with wine and presenting it to your friends is too scary, try it with some water and lemons like this. Or even with some milk at breakfast. It’s a beautiful object in its own right. £35
